Stone Lodge Farm

Stone Lodge Farm is located one mile away from Manor Farm, just a 5 minute bus journey!  It is a beautiful extensively managed livestock farm with horses stabled and grazing near the farm house.  Part of the farm was mined for ironstone between 1880 and 1961.  The mining has left a series of impressive slopes that are perfect for children to scale.  For older students the species rich slopes offer a perfect opportunity to study plant species diversity and plant identification.

Real wilderness is hard to find in Leicestershire but Stone Lodge Farm provides some fabulous bits of wild habitat.  Two local wildlife sites are filled with wildflowers and above these the old Harborough - Melton disused railway runs the length of the farm boundary.  The wooded, scrub and grassland habitats provide home for some of our rarer bird species including willow tit, yellow hammer and song thrush.  There are many opportunities to study habitats, try a spot of bird watching, use sweep nets and pooters to study the varied invertebrate population or just amble on a lovely circular walk taking in the wildlife and some of the historical features.
